In a press conference today, President Obama defended his proposed Syria action: 

"Over 1400 people were gassed. Over 400 of them were children. This is not something that we fabricated, this is not something that we are using as an excuse for military action," said Obama. "As I said last night, I was elected to end wars, not start 'em."
